How come it seems Russia, China and Korea don't make console games

I know Russia had a few (Dark Sector & Warframe I think?) and Korea had thoset Magna Carta games and Kingdom Under Fire (where is the 2nd one?) ; (but they and China seem to be content with making PC MMO's)

hmm?

There is no point. Their own domestic market is dominated by PC and to get anything out of foreign console market you need big money. They might as well make a strategy game or MMORPG, F2P for PC.

Same reason Japan hardly makes PC games. No market.

Actually Swashbucklers: Blue vs. Grey was created by a Russian developer.

What are you talking about. Japan makes a crap ton of Visual novels and dating sims for PC as well as side scrolling shooters and even some fighting games

If Indie developers can do it then so can they

Because Russia's forte is beautiful ladies. Not console games.
